What our Clients say…

“I was introduced to Eleanor McGillie from MGMPR through a business associate just under a year ago to look at PR for one  of my clients. MGMPR’s out of the box thinking and timescale for execution is first class. MGMPR is not your typical PR agency – they are a team of media law trained business professionals who get your voice heard in all forms of media. If you want to promote your company in a professional and structured way then call MGMPR Ltd to see what they can do for you. They have delivered great results for my clients. I highly recommend the company.”

Tom Verner – Managing Director of Momentum Business Development NI

“Eleanor has wide ranging expertise and has worked extremely hard to promote the renewable energy sector especially in the South West of England.”

Christine Griffiths – Aeolus Power (Wind-Energy) Ltd

“MGMPR Ltd has been employed by Markethill High School since September 1, 2012. The brief involves enhancing and developing publicity about the school for local media and ensuring the successes of the school are made known to new audiences, through both ‘traditional’ media and new social media opportunities. In all our dealings with the company, they have acted with clarity, diligence, sensitivity and initiative. Nothing has been too much trouble. I highly recommend MGMPR.”

 

James Maxwell – Principal of Markethill High School

MGMPR Ltd was appointed to do the PR for the Tour of Ulster 2015 cycling race which took place over the May Bank Holiday Weekend.

The event attracted almost 150 elite cyclists from across the globe. In spite of the heavy rain and strong winds calling off the race on the second day – the event was a huge success and gained fantastic coverage in advance of the race, during the event and after the event.

Due to the adverse weather conditions, our team were totally on top of the story all weekend for our colleagues in the media so journalists could report the most up-to-date and relevant information. As soon as anything happened – journalists knew about it!

Denise Watson, a sports journalist for UTV, U105 and the News Letter, very kindly shared these kind words with us.

“My first contact with Eleanor McGillie was for the Tour of Ulster cycle race in 2015. She took over the PR of the event this year and it was very useful as a Sports Journalist to have someone to call and email regarding times and stage results.

“In the past, for TV and radio bulletins, I was scrambling around websites and social media hoping that the information was correct as it’s vital that my scripts are accurate. From the start of this year’s event, I had Eleanor and her team to call upon when I had a question.

“She was courteous and nothing was too much trouble. But the most impressive element for me was how she understood my job as a journalist. I have encountered PR companies who are driven by their agenda. Eleanor patiently asked me what my needs were and understood how vital it was for me to get up to date and accurate information.

“I believe it’s because she is a trained and experienced journalist herself. I look forward to working with her on future events.”  Denise Watson, UTV /U105/News Letter Sports Journalist.
